A Finish ... Some Progress ... and maybe a start

Just a quick post to show what I have been up to. I have finally finished my Project Caddy by Rosalie Quinlan and I am really loving it. The big base allows me to see everything that I have in there and I am not loosing things down the bottom like in my other sewing bag.

Have made a start on the second block of my Nice People Nice Things Quilt. I am doing this a little different to the original as I want to have the sayings and the pictures on the front of the quilt and there were some that didn't really appeal to me so I have picked out my favourites. I purchased a Jelly Roll and a Honey Bun in the moda range of fabrics 'Object of Desire' and just bordering the stitcheries with these. I purchased the pattern whilst on our North QLD holiday last year and thought that Object of Desire was nice and bright and tropical. I always like to buy some fabric and/or pattern when we go on holiays as a momentum of what a great time we had. Sometimes though it does take me a while to get around to making them.

This was one of those times when I went to the local quilting shop for some thread and came out with fabric (sometimes I even come out with an entire quilt so I try not to make a habit of going in there). Am having some friends around tonight for some stitching so I might just have to make a start on this one.

Hope you have all had a great week.
